Australiaâ€™s KARNIVOOL present the first video from their upcoming release Sound Awake, out February 16, 2010 via SIN/SonyMusic Independent Network.
â€œSet Fire To The Hive,â€ with its distorted vocals, up-tempo vibe, raw prog-punk feel and vocalist Ian Kennyâ€™s venomous delivery, sounds nothing like Karnivool have attempted before and takes the band into uncharted sonic territory.

Critical praise of Sound Awake has already started rolling in from overseas. Rolling Stone Australia awarded the album 4 STARS calling it “A sprawling work of melody, mood, tempo and musicianship… Intricacy, pedantry and perfection.” Dan Slessor of KERRANG! exclaims, â€œTheir sound is a fine one indeed â€“ exploratory and spacious, heavy, truly epic, and gorgeously melodic.â€
Produced by Forrester Savell (The Butterfly Effect, Mammal, Dead Letter Circus), Sound Awake is kaleidoscopic & multi-dimensional. It delivers the bandâ€™s trademark sound and takes the listener to new heights as it ventures into innovative exploratory territory.
